Shortly after I retired, I found Patrick in the street and took him home and decided he would be my retirement gift. Patrick was loyal, loving, smart, a talker, curious and an acrobat. Patrick was always in motion and he was very territorial. He dominated the household with the other cats with an iron fist. I miss my buddy who would sleep with me at night and when I snuck back into bed in the morning, he would be there waiting for me to cuddle and snuggle. I miss him flying over our heads as if he were a black panther in the jungle. I will NEVER forget that he was the retirement gift that I gave to myself and he was the BEST gift I ever got!
